Support » Localhost Installs » Local Multisite Install Help

  • Hello I have an install of WP 4.9 that I am trying to set up, then network.

    SO FAR:
    Wordpress has been installed freshly. DB correct, permissions I think correct.
    The page loads with the option to create a multisite ready to enable.
    The site is accessible from local ip, admin, everything available.
    The site name is a 192.168… address and if it gets changed to the domain the site crashes. Redirect errors, 500 errors, timeout errors, etc.
    Right now, when I try to access from the external IP and port, I am redirected to my router’s connections page saying that the connection is OK.

    What seems to happen when I enable the domain change, is the domain www.*.com forwards to the static ip and open port, which redirects back to the domain, which redirects back to the ip and a loop is created which causes the redirection error. I don’t know how to fix that.

    The site is inaccessible externally.
    I have a domain, with static ip, mapped to a proper port.
    There is no issues with apache hosting the files, files are hosted and have been run.
    A sample index.html not associated with WP loads fine from internal and external.

    I am stuck.

    wp-config.php is default with added security keys, WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE set to true, and the site names defined as, remember if I change these names the site crashes.


    This is for a business and not my personal info from my profile page, any and all help would be appreciated. THIS IS DRIVING ME NUTS. I am familiar with the apache config files, mod files, sites enabled files, ports.conf files, etc.

    Please help, thank you.

    Hi, that sounds frustrating! Did you get it sorted already?

    How is your local environment set up?

    I have not gotten it sorted yet…

    WP is running on a linux server in a Cisco UCS environment. This blade will solely be used for web serving.
